My GORUCK Bullet Ruck 15L Review – THE Best “Intro” Ruck?

I know when I was looking for my first “real” ruck that I had to sift through a lot of bags that looked like (and were priced like) expensive travel luggage…when all I wanted to do was carry around 20 or 30 pounds worth of ruck plates.

Thankfully, the GORUCK Bullet ruck was there to bail me out!

Let’s discuss why the GORUCK Bullet is the best “starter ruck” for rucking enthusiasts and why it makes for a better “investment” than some cheaper and more expensive options.

My GORUCK Ballistic Trainers Review – THE Rucking/CrossFit Crossover Shoe?

If you’re familiar with GORUCK, the first things that comes to mind when you think about the brand are there unique, durable, and iconic ruck sacks.

The Barbell Prescription – My Review

You have any of those ~40-year-old guys in your life who are just like, “ohhhh…I’m old now. I can’t do that,” after roughly 7 minutes of light volleyball at some kind of friendly gathering?

Yeah…the bad news is, you probably do (don’t we all!) The good news? They simply can’t use those types of excuses anymore.

These excuses don’t mix with the Barbell Rx.
